Becoming a Unity Minister
How do I become a Unity minister?
There are three avenues through which ordination as a Unity minister may be obtained. All avenues require a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution of higher learning (or equivalent as applied for and granted by Unity). Other requirements vary according to the desired avenue.
The first option is the two-year resident program. This involves a transformative curriculum given in the context of a cohort group. It does require the participant to live in the Kansas City area as classes are held daily, Monday through Thursday. Fees are reviewed regularly, so for accurate information, please contact Cindy Bronson, Registrar; Unity School for Religious Studies; 1901 NW Blue Parkway, Unity Village, MO 64065-0001. Phone 816-251-3535; web address is www.unityworldhq.org.
A second avenue is the Field Licensing Program, a four-year program for Licensed Unity Teachers or ministers ordained in another faith who are leading a ministry already, and whose ministries would be jeopardized if they were to leave for two years. Contact Martha Mosley for more information about this program.
Thirdly, for individuals interested in an urban experience of ministry, the
Urban Ministerial School in Detroit, MI, makes it possible to work full time
and attend classes part time. During the three years there, students complete
the equivalent of the first year of the resident Ministerial Education Program.
Candidates must live in the Detroit area as classes are held weeknights and
weekends. You may contact them by mail:
